Sometimes graffiti at school is a good thing. On Thursday, March 14, Bishop Ireton High School students and faculty signed their names to two 36-foot-long steel beams that will support the new 40,000 square foot academic center.

“The Cardinal community came together on Thursday with great pride and joy in signing the beams that will become part of the foundation of the new academic center,” Principal Denise Tobin said. “We all look forward to the completion of the building and the additional space and resources it will provide to our school.”

The two beams will be exposed on the third-floor of the physics lab, allowing them to be visible to the school community. The students signed the beams during their lunch breaks and used different color markers representing their class year.
